Palin has announced that she’s ready to be back in the governor’s chair. In her first press release since Tuesday, Palin says that she’s excited to be back in Alaska and ready to get back to work as governor of her state. She also has denied the ex-McCain aides’ comments that say that she didn’t know that Africa was a continent and that she spent too much money on her wardrobe during the campaign.

Ever since McCain chose Palin as his running mate, I’ve hear more rumors about her than about any other politician in the race. The spotlight was put onto Palin the second she stepped into the race—a spotlight that yearned to expose each of her flaws and secrets to the nation. The media seemed to be just waiting for something to call her out on—to make her seem like just another “stupid” woman who doesn’t understand politics.

In my opinion Palin has held her ground well. She stood up for herself when she needed to and has stayed quiet when it was more appropriate. I’m interested to see if McCain’s running-mate will strive to get her name out there before 2011 and if the presidency is a future goal for her.
